The extremely hyped former number 1 recruit Dorial Green-Beckham is one of 5 Missouri Tigers to be suspended after being involved in a campus pot drug bust.
Freshmen receiver’s DGB and Levi Copelin, along with freshman line backer Torey Boozer, defensive lineman Harold Brantley, and tight end Brandon Holifield were sitting in a parking lot in DGB’s car when they were approached by an officer. The officer smelled marijuana when he approached and that led to the arrest of the 3 players on a misdemeanor charge of possession of 35 grams or less of marijuana. All 3 were released with a summons to appear in court next month and all 5 were subsequently suspended by Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel.
An officer on patrol found the players at 11:49 p.m. in a white Lincoln Navigator in Lot G south of Memorial Stadium. Weimer said the officer detected the odor of marijuana and when the players got out of the car, the officer found marijuana.
The AP reports that a team spokesman has said all of the players will miss at least one game.
Green-Beckham has seven catches for 128 yards and a touchdown this season.
